      The Power of Passion

      Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha own ten hotels in Mexico and one in Manhattan, and they are almost always on the move. Recently they added an exciting new property to their roster of unusually cool hotels in their native country—Hotel Escondido in a Oaxacan village by the sea.

      For Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha building hotels that reflect their surroundings is more than just a job: it is the passion that drove these two Mexican entrepeneurs to leave their respective former lives in the citrus growing business.

      We use a local team every time we build a hotel, and we read the surroundings and their traditions to integrate the local culture into our project.

      They met during university and quickly became friends, ending up joining forces in the real estate business. The transformation to building a hotel collection focused on art and design came naturally; both are avid art collectors and active in the Mexican art community. Couturier and Micha are passionately committed to investing in the regions in which they build their hotels, from Mexico to the United States. “We use a local team every time we build a hotel, and we read the surroundings and their traditions to integrate the local culture into our project,” Couturier explains. Both are naturally very mobile, jet-setting from one art fair and hotel to the next, but without ever losing track of home and their families.

      Certain rituals, such as Friday dinners with the family in Mexico City, are important to Micha, who is single and lives in an apartment within their hotel Distrito Capital. Their newest project marks their entrance on a virgin beach in Oaxaca on the Pacific coast with Hotel Escondido. With the success of their friendship and partnership spilling over into their brand Grupo Habita, it is sure to make its mark on the sleepy surf village.
